When talking on the phone, how do you spell?

It's hard sometimes to convey your message over the phone, at times you want to spell what you mean. Most of the time, it's hard to remember what spelling words to say. I remember before that a friend of mine who was a telephone operator then had to memorize a list of spelling words, ok so searching thru the web, I came across a page in wikipedia entitled NATO phonetic alphabet. Hey that's what I need. Oh how I love wikipedia.

NATO Phonetic Alphabet:

Letter Code Word Letter Code Word
A Alpha N November
B Bravo O Oscar
C Charlie P Papa
D Delta Q Quebec
E Echo R Romeo
F Foxtrot S Sierra
G Golf T Tango
H Hotel U Uniform
I India V Victor
J Juliet W Whiskey
K Kilo X X-ray
L Lima Y Yankee
M Mike Z Zulu
